International Moving Companies Forge Closer Links to Improve Services Across Major European Destinations: March 2008
Leading British removals company, Burke Bros Moving Group, based in Wolverhampton UK, www.burkebros.co.uk, have been forging new operational links for their overseas and European moving
services, with two new removal company partnerships. One with Cyprus based MK Worldwide Movers and a second with French based Bailly Demenagements, www.baillydem.com.
As Burke Bros continue to establish themselves on the world stage for overseas removals, they are forging ahead to offer their customers improved customer services, greater expertise, and collective strength between these two major European destinations.
Burke Bros’s Managing Director, Gary Burke said, “As we regularly move household belongings to both Cyprus and France we’ve recognised the need to strengthen partnerships with good quality removal companies, based at the place of destination, giving both parties a representation in duel locations.”
To help reinforce these two new strategic alliances, Gary Burke, has been visiting Nice to hold discussions with Bailly Demenagements, whilst Burke Bros’s Head of International Removals, Chris Starkey, has recently returned from Paphos where he held talks with MK Movers to tie up closer business relations there. The key benefits of these two new alliances mean Burke Bros now have storage and distribution, on location, in both Cyprus and France.
The launch of the Burke Bros and MK Worldwide Movers partnership has recently been announced in the Paphos Times newspaper, with a dedicated page to moving abroad.
Chris Starkey, said “Although we’ve worked with MK Movers many times before, we felt the time was right to put our association on a more permanent long term footing. We were particularly pleased to hear that MK have now become are a full BAR member, which gives them recognised accreditation within the British removals industry.”
MK Worldwide Movers Head of Operations, Mario Papamichael, said “This new partnership with Burke Bros will strengthen our two companies and give us both a much broader range of removal and freight forwarding services, along with a more comprehensive door-to-door service within Cyprus, and Internationally. Having reached this new agreement we a pleased that the customer will get new levels of capability, resources, and an even more seamless removal service.”
Chris also got a chance to meet MK’s Agent in Paphos, Gwenny Mary Demitriou, who is also the owner manager of Gwenny’s Red Tape Service Ltd, www.paphosliving.com. Gwenny commented saying “As we specialise in services related to cutting through ‘Red Tape’ by assisting people through paperwork associated with Immigration and Car Importation in Cyprus, it was important to meet Chris, along with Mario, as we believe we can offer the new Burke Bros & MK Movers partnership an invaluable service for their future customers.”
Jim Cross, the Founder behind the leading Cyprus information website, www.Cyprusliving.org, commented saying, “We wish Burke Bros and MK Worldwide Movers well as both have a great reputation for delivering first class removal services, so together we’re sure they will continue to play a vital role in bringing new citizens to our beautiful Cypriot island paradise.”
A whole series of joint marketing activities will follow over the next 12 months. Gary Burke added, “Regards France, we will be advertising in the Rivera Reporter and on Rivera Radio. This will give us market exposure in Provence, The Alpes, Cote, and D’azur helping both ourselves and Bailly Demenagements promote this Southern part of France.”
These new working partnerships also have a positive environmental impact, as it means both removers will more frequently carry goods on both the outbound and return journeys.
